This National Tooth Fairy Day, Delta Dental reminds families and caregivers of the role the Tooth Fairy can play in teaching children about oral health. While 72% of parents surveyed said they struggle with getting their child to brush their teeth, one in three parents agreed that Tooth Fairy visits are a positive way to instill good oral health habits in their children. In addition to helping create good oral health habits, Tooth Fairy visits are special, fun, and exciting. Nearly half of parents welcome the Tooth Fairy into their homes because they want to:

  • Give their child something to be excited about (53%)
  • Make their child feel special (46%)
  • Celebrate something fun (48%)
